    So bad news or not do you reckon? What would she have said to me instead.. 'Yes you've been successful/no you've not made the cut' I can't imagine they're allowed to say either over the phone, which was why I found it bizarre that she asked my name. She said the decisions are given out from the admissions team in batches to admin staff who process them.. Does this mean that I'm not in one of the batches they've had yet? Presumably they've made all their decisions by now and it's just a case of waiting for it to reach us individually... Really hope we both get offers!!

    Just speculating here but she was probably admin and wrongly assumed she could tell you over the phone. When she asked the admissions department they would have told her that decisions are only made via track/email and not over the phone.

    Or she was checking if one had already been sent to you but possibly to an incorrect email address or something similar.

    I guess by asking for your name they wanted to check
    1) if you'd actually been interviewed
    2) if you should have already received an email or not

    And as people have said I don't think they're allowed to give decisions either way over the phone so really wouldn't worry!

    Still waiting here as well, fingers crossed for us all!

    Yeah when I called up yesterday they also asked my name and stuff, but then said decisions will be given out over a couple of weeks? Maybe I have a rejection, that's why she was being really sketchy. Honestly, I am so done with this entire process. It just seems that all unis agree that I am not good enough, but are unwilling to tell me why.
